Subject: [Boost-build] msvc 10 library names
From: Bruce Visscher (bruce.visscher_at_[hidden])

I am trying to build libraries for use by Visual Studio 2010. I am
building from cygwin bash but intend to use the resulting library
from Visual Studio. For the moment (to reduce the dependencies) I am
using native threads rather than pthread-win32.
So, I have:
# Configure msvc (default version, searched for in standard locations and PATH).
using msvc ;
# Configure specific msvc version (searched for in standard locations and PATH).
using msvc : 10.0 ;
# Configure specific Python version.
using python : 2.7 : /cygdrive/c/Python27 :
/cygdrive/c/Python27/include : cygdrive/c/Python27/libs ;
in my user-config.jam.
I built b2.exe using gcc.
When I try to build a trivial console application in VS that uses
boost::filesystem, I get:
fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libboost_filesystem-vc100-mt-gd-1_47.lib'
The build command I use to build the library is:
b2 --build-directory=/tmp/build-boost toolset=msvc threadapi=win32
--layout=versioned --built-type=complete -q --with-filesystem
which creates these libraries and DLLs:

The questions I have at this point are:
1. What is the magic that generates the name
when I compile?
2. What does the "-gd-" part of this name mean?
3. How can I get bjam to put "lib" in front of the library name?
4. How can I get bjam to put "lib" in front of the DLL name rather
than "cyg" (if that is what is required..maybe it doesn't matter)?
5. How can I get bjam to append "-gd-" to the library and DLL names?
Thanks for any help,
